Remember ... 

Remember Jack Spurlock? One of the first posts where we introduced the "I'm OK Line" had him in it, and we've gotten a follow-up from John Downer: We have found Jack Spurlock! Incredibly, he stayed in his house on Davis Avenue in Moss Point and actually claims to have electricity with his generator! And, this man is 81 years old with Parkinson's! Anyway, he was staying in Mobile and he is safe. Thank you so much for you help and good luck with what I know will be the most trying time of your life! Great news. Hopefully there are hundreds of such reunions going on right now, because each one means one less dagger in South Mississippi's heart.
